1/2 cups Packed Brown Sugar
4 whole Large Eggs, Lightly Beaten

2. Lightly spray a rectangular 11 X 8 inch glass baking pan with cooking spray.
3. In a large bowl, place oats, baking powder, cinnamon, kosher salt, and brown sugar. Whisk the dry ingredients until combined.
4. In a medium bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Add the unsweetened applesauce, milk, and vanilla. Whisk together until incorporated.
5. Pour the egg mixture into the oat mixture, and stir to combine. Fold in the dried fruit of your choice. (A peeled and diced fresh apple also works well.)
6. Spread the batter into the prepared baking dish, being sure to smooth the top.
7. Bake at 325 degrees for 40 minutes, or until lightly browned, and cooked through.
8. Cut into squares, and serve warm, with a splash of milk over top. Or allow to cool completely, cut into squares, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate. To serve, eat square cold, or place in a bowl, microwave to reheat, and serve with milk on top.
